Law Enforcement Operations
Patrol is the backbone of operations at the Sheriff’s Office. This division, the largest in our agency, is responsible for maintaining peace and order throughout the county 365 days a year. The main Operations building in Inverness and all Community Resource Offices are closed during weekends and observed holidays, but road patrol and law enforcement services to citizens never stop.
Although our county’s population has seen tremendous growth in the last few years, our crime rate remains extremely low. This is due to the hard work of the men and women in the Patrol Division.
The Patrol Division is currently broken down into two districts, east and west. Within each district, assigned squads of deputy sheriffs work 12-hour shifts. Within the patrol division, deputy sheriffs are part of special operational units also.
The Criminal Investigation Division is comprised of the Major Crimes Section and the Special Investigations Section. The Major Crimes Section is composed of two squads of detectives who are assigned to investigate and follow up on crimes within both the East and West Districts. The type of investigations that the Major Crimes Section is responsible for are: homicides, robberies, fraud and financial crimes, aggravated crimes against persons, crimes against children involving abuse/sexual abuse/criminal neglect or death, adult related sex crimes (rape), ensuring Sexual Offenders and Predators are abiding by their registration and living requirements, Internet Crimes Against Children, performing digital computer forensics, missing persons and cold case investigations. Our Forensic Unit is also under this section and is responsible for the processing of crime scenes, latent print examinations, and processing evidence in our crime lab.
The Special Investigations Section is composed of our School Resource Officer Program, School Crossing Guards, Evidence Security and Storage, Victim Resource Advocates and Special Projects.
